Shawn T. Wooden (D) 

Council President Wooden

Born and raised in North Hartford, Council President Shawn Wooden ran for City Council because he believes that, as a united city, we can turn problems into solutions and challenges into opportunities.

With the help of a scholarship, Shawn was able to attend Trinity College. After working in city and state government, he continued his education, receiving a law degree from New York University School of Law.

Since then, Shawn has worked with non-profits, labor unions, business leaders, and community activists. The Connecticut Law Tribune has presented Shawn with its "Community Contributions Award." Additionally, he was named one of "Twenty-Five Investment Professionals to Watch" by Pensions and Investments Magazine and one of Hartford County's "Forty Under 40" business leaders by Hartford Business Journal. He was also presented with the "Alumni Medal of Excellence" by Trinity College and named one of the state's 100 most influential blacks by the Connecticut NAACP.

Today, as City Council President, Shawn is dedicated to working with the Mayor, his colleagues on the Council, and community members throughout the city to unite Hartford behind our shared vision of opportunity and prosperity for all.

Shawn and his wife Biree live in the West End with their two young sons. They worship at Faith Congregational Church.
